Southern, Israel / Grocery Store

A loan of $2,775 helped to finish renovating her store and purchase store supplies.


Fatma's story

Fatma is a 50-year-old woman from southern Israel, and is married with eleven children and several grandchildren. Fatma has an elementary school education but a strong and proven business intuition. She owns a successful general store which sells children's clothes, women's traditional dresses and different trinkets and gifts. Fatma has taken a loan to expand her enterprise and open a mini-market on the same lot where her general store is located.

The loan will help her with the final renovations and to purchase store supplies. Fatma has trained her daughter to manage the general store so she has the time to develop the mini-market and strengthen her business ventures.

In the future Fatma wants to develop her businesses so they can support and employ not just her and her family but additional workers from the area, creating a source of income for others.
